This is one of the rare historical buildings in Abu Dhabi. It's just a small old brick tower. You will see it when passing the Al Maqtaa Bridge. Anyway you can't stop on the road. So you will just get a little glance on it.

As expected we spotted Al Maqtaa Fort from the very impressive Khalifa Bridge going to and from our hotel on Saadiyrat Island.

It is not really something to see or visit. You just drive by and you can have a quick look. The most important thing to know about the fort is its history
